73: Melanie Shankle | Finding the Bright Side



On today’s episode, we’re chatting with New York Time’s best selling author, Melanie Shankle. We had the biggest blast in this conversation with Melanie. She has written some of my very favorite books, Sparkly Green Earrings,(on parenting), Antelope in the Living Room(on marriage), and Nobody’s Cuter than You (on friendship), and now her latest release, On the Bright Side just to name a few! Melanie is wonderful, hilarious, genuine, and just one of the best story tellers you’ll ever hear! You are in for such a treat today!

We talk with Melanie about finding the courage to get back up when life doesn’t go according to plan, how to discern when it’s time to move onto something new, and how to hold onto joy and gratitude no matter what life throws our way. We may even tackle the roller coaster ride that is parenting teenagers as well! (We can do it!!!)

It’s crazy how God's timing works and how every single week, somehow we need exactly the truth He brings through these conversations, and this week’s episode is no exception! We hope it speaks just as powerfully into your life as well, friends.
Listen in.
